The Cloud computing Summer School 2012 did address high level technology topics in the field of Cloud computing systems and application. In-depth knowledge is offered on topics like cloud applications, high-performance computing, Platform-as-a-Service, cloud federations, Instrastructure-as-a-Service.
The Contrail summer school on Cloud Computing Systems and Applications is the successor of successful previous events held in September 2009 (Oxford, UK), July 2010 (Reisenburg, Germany) and June 2011 (Hyeres, France).
The school will include a mix of lectures and hands-on sessions in the domain of Cloud computing systems and applications. Lectures from leading researchers in the domain will discuss Cloud technologies which are already shaping the future of computing infrastructures. Hands-on sessions will give participants practical experience in this rapidly-changing field and prepare them to use the Cloud and participate in its future developments. Hands-on sessions will be based on the Contrail Cloud system.
The aims of the Contrail Summer School are:
- To introduce participants to the Cloud computing paradigm, illustrated by examples of real, demanding Cloud applications;
- To present IaaS and PaaS cloud systems;
- To provide lectures and practical courses on system-level techniques to achieve scalability, elasticity, quality of service and security in Cloud systems;
- To provide a forum for participants to discuss their research work and share experience with experienced researchers.
The school is open to postgraduate students (MSc, PhD) and young researchers (from technical industries, research laboratories and academic environments) who have recently started (or are about to start) working on cloud research projects. Prospective students from computer science, computational science and application backgrounds are encouraged to join: the only pre-requisite is basic knowledge in distributed systems.
Registration is closed.
